I went from an Expedition to an Explorer Ltd. and I have been really happy with it. It is fun to drive, has enough cargo room for my dog crates when I go to dog shows and has a lot of zip to it! So far my gas mileage has been around 17 mpg and that isn't all highway driving and it's been under freezing the whole month of January. The Explorer is very sure footed and handled very well in the snow without even putting it into 4 wheel drive. So far I like it a lot!!
I like the overall design of the Explorer and the heated seats are super for this cold winter!
I would like to see a bigger storage compartment in the front console and a few more cupholders. My Expedition had 12:)
